Goodies on auto
16 June 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

"Robot" is one of the better episodes from the LWT season. That doesn't make it one of the best (none of the LWT episodes are among the 20 best), but it is enjoyable and often really funny. Bill being sacked has been done before, but they score points in the perils of raising children, and Bill as bearded Swedish au pair is pretty funny, although a bit cheap. The final slapstick with the kitchen gear revolt is funny and makes a good closing.

It is, however, all too obvious that it is an LWT episode. It seems to have been made faster than the older episodes, with no room for revising parts that didn't come out so well. The episode feels a bit long, despite being shorter than the classic episodes. Anyway, it has the merit of being a late episode that is relatively good.
